I’m sure that I’m feeling like most parents right now – enjoying the feeling of life slowing down for the end of term next week. Life reached fever pitch just around the time my son took his Year 2 SATs and since them I have felt him slowly unwind, becoming the lovely happy boy I know him to be. I think it’s safe to say he has done little work at school this half term. Their Leavers Assembly seems to have taken a silly amount of the school day and they’ve had ‘Golden Time’ daily, rather than on the usual Friday afternoon.
The last few weeks have been fun with new milestones and achievements. There were new belts at karate, Sports Day and Report Day. My 7 year old lost his second tooth (which he pulled out himself!) and my daughter has grown so tall we need to buy her a new desk. I love watching them together – best and worst of friends.

I was beginning to think my children always stood in the same order, like Ant and Dec, until I found this photo from Sports Day
And exploring the local canal
Both my children have worked hard this year so we’re really looking forward to kicking back over the holidays. We have some amazing adventures lined up which we will be sharing here.
